The Daily Dispatch: November 30, 1863., [Electronic resource], McNeill's capture in Hampshire county. (search)
eight men, thirty-four men from the 62d regiment, commanded by Lt. Jno. B. Moorman, and nine men of Capt. Enright's company, under command of Lt. Fleming. Nearly a week was spent in the vicinity of Moorefield, watching for a Yankee train to come along; and they would have intercepted a train near that place but for the desertion of two men of White's command, who informed the enemy of their designs. On Monday morning, the 16th inst., some three miles from Burlington, and fifteen from New Creek, in Hampshire, they came up with a train consisting of eighty wagons, loaded with commissary and sutlers' stores. The train was guarded by about 120 men, cavalry and infantry. A brisk skirmish ensued, in which we had one man mortally wounded and three or four others severely injured. The enemy lost fifteen or twenty killed and thirty-four prisoners. The wagons were fired and the most of them destroyed; but the horses, numbering 245, with their harness, were brought off safely.--About 60
